This acrylic & ink on paper piece is a strong and impressive landscape work. The nimbus cloud occupies almost the entire image, only leaving a narrow sea level on the bottom. Between the sea and the sky, there is some faint landscape. The orange toned sky strengthens the sense of volume and vitality of the cloud, which indicates a possible upcoming storm.
